Main St. (formerly Pine2Pink), is an experience-based, community-driven nonprofit dedicated to local breast cancer patients.
The nonprofit will be active during the entire month of October in New Hope, Carversville, Perkasie, Newtown, Doylestown, Peddler’s Village, Shops at Valley Square – and now The Dublin Town Center, Main St.’s newest partner.
The shopping destination is located in the middle of Dublin and houses 33 local retailers and a brewery.
The collaboration – Main St.’s eighth – will provide multiple “shopping with a purpose” opportunities throughout the month of October. Look for fun events as well as raffles and special “Eat, Drink and Shop Pink” offers by participating retailers within the center.
The Dublin Town Center will turn its property, featuring over 100 lights, pink for the entire month. All participating retailers will have balloon arrangements outside their door compliments of a donation by Up In The Air Balloon and D-Town Designs as well as a “proud supporter” decal donated by Thompson Detail. There will be several “virtual hugs” placed throughout the center as part of a smart phone generated virtual scavenger hunt encouraging people to visit and shop local.
The collaboration will also tie into an initiative by Grand View Health’s new Dublin-based Outpatient Center, encouraging the community to screen themselves through mammograms during the month of October. Located next to Dublin Town Center, Grand View Health, 145 N. Main St., will offer extended hours for mammography screenings.
“Dublin Town Center is proud to unite as a community of businesses, residents, tenants and guests, to make a meaningful impact during our “Eat, Drink and Shop Pink” month of October, stated Corinna Garis, marketing lead for Dublin Town Center. “Combining efforts with Main St., Dublin Town Center is dedicated to raising awareness, promoting early detection, and supporting those affected by breast cancer.
“Throughout this month, you can expect to see a variety of initiatives, from our pink lights, and educational initiatives during scheduled events, to pink window displays, tasty themed food items and a unique variety of surprises and efforts within our shops. We believe in the power of our unique DTC collaborations to create meaningful experiences and positive change, and hopefully contribute to a brighter, healthier, hopeful future for everyone.”
“Main St. has had the good fortune to impact a lot of lives and be elevated by people in the community as well as very strong support from local businesses,” said Keith Fenimore, founder of Main St. “This expansion was brokered by Amy Berridge and Brittany Brown of Buxmont Social Media and Marketing. Their introduction has blossomed into a great collaboration that expands Main St.’s footprint, which will help drive more awareness, sponsors, partners and ultimately more donations. Main St.’s success is a true community effort and we are very grateful to support the breast cancer community of Bucks County.”
